Here are a few of my favorite bread recipes. Don't be scared of yeast, some people think it's tricky, but after using it a few times you'll get the hang of it.
Don't spend money on bagels either....click HERE for a bagel recipe that works for me.
If you try a new recipe give yourself time to learn it. I remember trying to make bread the first time without a Bosch mixer and hand kneading. It.took.forever.!! And the final result was less than appetizing. It took me almost 2 years, I'm a slow learner, to get my bread to a point of looking and tasting the way we like it. Don't get frustrated and give up if it doesn't work the first time. Make a goal of trying a new bread recipe this week!
